March of the Internet Nobody, day thirty: Nature photography week…

30 Mar

For my penultimate post in this maelstrom of March madness, a more accurate description would be “countryside”, instead of “nature” photography, as I tried to capture a bit more of the actual landscape on my journey home today.

I took a detour past the imposing Castle Hill country house and gardens, snapping a few shots of the estate cottages, the lodge house at the entrance to the drive, Castle Hill house itself and the surrounding woodland. The crows called noisily from high above as they built their twiggy nests in the tall trees, daffodils bloomed on the roadside and the river flowed peacefully past.

It finally felt like spring is actually here and summer is on the way.

    Lovely photos! Ah, to be out in nature taking pictures and enjoying nature. Wonderful respite from my office work. Cheers!

      Thank you, I’m glad they provided some relief. It was a respite for me, too, driving home from 9 hours in a windowless industrial unit.
      Although the fact that said industrial unit is right on the edge of Exmoor National Park is a bit of a bonus, I admit.

        In Portland, we are surrounded by parks and walking trails. However, I find that my mindset often keeps me from getting out more than anything else. The Pacific Northwest is incredibly beautiful…if you ever are in this area you will love it!

        I think the chances of me ever being there are incredibly slim, but I’ll bear it in mind, thanks. ;~}

        We have one near us. Probably not as old, but old enough to be considered historic.
